Color My World Challenge!

I'm so excited that today marks the kick-off of the Color My World Challenge!  This challenge was dreamed up by Jessamie of Bird and Branch Redesign.
A group of bloggers has taken the challenge to introduce a new color into our homes.  This series will be running for the next four Tuesdays.  We'll be using our new color in decor, paint, and fabric.  The final week will be a wrap up and a HUGE blog hop where you can link up a post showing how YOU added a new color to your home too.  I really hope some of you will take the challenge and link up on May 1st...mark your calendar now.






It was a little hard for me to choose a color.  I already have tooo so many colors in my home and was wanting to go a bit more neutral.  But, I kept coming back to NAVY.





My favorite living rooms feature not just navy, but navy paired with pink.

Or navy and coral:





Even my favorite princess is drawn to navy and coral!


What looks better with navy than some warm gold and crisp white?


I hope you'll follow along over the next few weeks as I incorporate navy (and maybe even some pink, coral, and/or gold!) into my living room.

Some of my absolute favorite bloggers are also participating in the challenge.  Stop by and see what colors they are adding to their homes.  This challenge should be fun!

I love this color combination. Looking forward to seeing you use it!

I think navy IS a neutral! It is just like the dark punctuation in the room! Contrasts the bright colors, but balances them out too! So fun... can't wait to see your choices!

Love your inspiration (I mean really who wouldn't love anything that Kate Middleton does???). I can't wait to see how you incorporate navy. My vote is for the navy and coral combo!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

So fun! Can't wait to see what you all do. And I'm all over Navy too. I think that's going to be the main color in my living room.

The navy on its own is gorgeous, but when you pair it with the pink or coral it's beyond amazing. Can't wait to see what you do.
